The paper treats the management of the realization of civil engineering projects or civil engineering buildings construction management, as a complex dynamic process, which entails a large number of strategic and operative decisions which are important for an efficient, cost effective, and economic construction. The management process execution is not possible without the functions such as planning, organizing, coordination and control. Planning as the initial function, important for the forecast of the future events tasks and goals, is rendered much simpler by the application of computers and software packages. Such software packages facilitate the integral management planning, realization, as well as control of the course of realization of civil engineering projects, that is the entire course of civil engineering buildings construction. The most frequent programs in this application are the Scheduler, Prima Vera and Project. The experience acquired in the application of these software packages has shown that the best results in civil engineering have been attained by the software package PROJECT 2003.
